The new Doctor Who spinoff, Class, arrives in less than a month. The BBC just revealed that the first episode will air on Oct. 22, and while we don’t have a full trailer yet, you can now watch two featurettes about the show.
Class takes place in Coal Hill School, a location with a long history in Doctor Who canon. The main characters are a group of students and their teacher Miss Quill, and Doctor Who showrunner Steven Moffat describes it as “a British Buffy”—an appropriate comparison given that Coal Hill is kind of the Hellmouth of Doctor Who, a magnet for weird sci-fi adventures.
Showrunner Patrick Ness introduces Class in its first featurette, along with a cameo from Doctor Who‘s Peter Capaldi, who will appear in the show’s first episode.
The second featurette focuses on Miss Quill, showing her stalking the halls with some kind of laser gun.
From what we’ve seen so far, Class looks like the spiritual successor to Torchwood. It’s more adult-rated than Doctor Who, and it features a diverse cast including at least one queer character in a lead role. Considering Patrick Ness’s previous work as a young adult novelist, there’s a good chance it’s going to be heartbreaking as well.
